Soul’s Desire


A question of love that was never asked
Between friends with hearts hidden yet unmasked
Between two friends did fate and love conspire
In sweet romance amid the wine and chat
In hushed conversation where souls inspire
The heart to confess that one deepest thought
Of love beyond candlelight and roses
Of love that can never be sold or bought
A man sinks to his knee and proposes
The question of love that had to be asked
For she is all that his heart can desire
And deep in his mind all that he knows is
This love, but it is far, far more than that
For she is all his soul has ever sought
